    I am using a Samsung A950. You guys all seem really helpful here. I have this ringtone I want to put on my phone and I'm having difficulting texting it to my phone.

    I took an mp3 file and I renamed it to a .mid. It is <b>definitely</b> as a midi now and no longer being recognized as mp3. I sent it as an attachment from my hotmail account to my cell phone. I receive the message on my cell phone.

    It shows up in a message as <<filename.mid>>

    However when I try to save the sound it says there is no sound file.

    Any advice?

    Followed All Direction To No Avail

    Hi guys
    Ive downloaded the test file from marks site and removed the "_" symbol and left the .mp3 extension because i have an E815 so it can stay .mp3. Im using Gmail and my phone beeps and it says I have a file waiting for download but when i press download it says, "unable to download file, please try again later". I have been retrying to download for hours. How do i fix this error. I also am a member of vzwpics so I dont know why this wouldnt work.

    Thank You

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    thanks!
    you can hear the ringtone for only couple of seconds in the message preview pane. you need to save the sound by going to the options and you will get your full ringtone

    I have a hacked e815 phone. I can get ringtones .mp3 or .mid files on my phone no problem. Now I am trying to send them to my v276 phone vi a pix messages. I have successfully sent
    StarTrek-NextGen.mid at 7kb
    And
    Halloween(theme).mid at 7kb
    Both from Mark V’s website.

    Now when I send larger files like 90kb I start having problems.
    These songs were taken off
    http://vzw.ztango.com/vzwtones

    If I send a song.mp3 I can receivethen and listen to them but not use it as a ringtone.
    If I changed it to song.mid (yes I can see the hidden file extensions so its not song.mid.mp3) the type is now midi sequence. it won’t recognize the file type. can't even hear it.
    If I change it to song.midi the type is now neroMediaPlayer media files (but if I open it, it opens in media player). It also won’t recognize the file.

    I think the files are to big to set as ringtones for the v276. Any ideas on how to make them smaller.

    Also I know the mp3 files do have voices in them and I don’t think that should be a problem because I downloaded a midi file from verizon and it has voices in it and can be used as a ringtone. It is 37.8 Kb according to the cell phone. Note: my v276 says the halloween(theme) is 3.71 Kb and not 7 Kb like the computer says

    I have the same problems if I try to send a poly ringtone.

    I also tyied chooseing my phone from the device list on http://vzw.ztango.com/vzwtones
    But it is not listed only the
    260 265 325 A840 E815 V710
    Does anyone also know if any of these phones are similar to the V276. I know the e815 and V710 aren’t.

    thanks

    You'll want to seach the forums on V276.... from what I remember, the V276 does NOT support MP3 files...

    If you email, they get converted (by verizon's network) to .QCP (qualcom purevoice files) along the way which can NOT be used as ring tones...

    a way around it... use Yamaha SMAF formatted files, renamed to .MID...

    Ok ok I figured it out.

    I now have music with voices on my v276.

    I used information from these site a little bit of both.

    http://www.sprintusers.com/free-ringtones.php
    http://www.howardforums.com/showpost...9&postcount=19

    I will post a more detailed tutorial latter.

    On the v276 it works but they are not very loud, but just as loud as the other ringtones. But on my E815 (I use it to send the files over cuz I have free pix messaging) It is SUPER LOUD. I’m talking if your at a noisy bar and you phone rings you WILL hear it. A cool side effect.

    I think I can fix it on the v276 by following the direction on the first link.

    PS. I noticed that there was a v276m in MPT does anyone know the seem edit or a link?

    Try the Yamaha SMAF's they might be louder than Qualcom Purevoice...

    Examples... http://mark.cdmaforums.com use the RING TONE link on the left... Grab any .MID with a * next to it... like Axel-F-Theme.mid*

    or use the old ones at http://zano6.home.att.net/MyRingTones.htm

    how I made them see -> http://zano6.home.att.net/VoiceRing.htm

    ok that super load ringtone doesn't work. My phone started acting real sluggish and slow that day. so I power cycled it and then the ringtone just didn't ring, no sound at all. everthing else was fine. I tried to do it to a diffent ringtone and it was not any louder on my phone just poorer quality sound. so no ringtone. no tutorial

    I will look more into it later and try some of marks site. Doing WAP now.

    OK. I could use a little help here. I tried sending a ringtone file as an .mp3 to my phone. As expected, it converted to a QCP, however, it did allow me to assign this file as a ringtone.

    I then tried converting the file to a midi file and this is where I am having problems. I followed the instructions on Mark Venture's page to convert it from an mp3 to a mid file so it is now xxxx.mid, not xxxx.mid.mp3.

    I tried sending that file to my phone, however, the file will not open. It just says Unable to download." I am using the new RAZR v3m. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Oh, to rename the file, I am simply right clicking and deleting the .mp3 and replacing it with .mid. When I view the properties it displays as a .mid file, not an mp3.

    Any suggestions??

    Thanks,

    Doug

    sounds lilke a filesize problem.
    Make sure it is under 340k (though you could probably make it a hell of a lot smaller than that if it is just a short ringtone).

    Thanks, Humpa. Are there any settings or properties I can change to reduce the file size?

    OK. I finally got the ringtones to work!! Humpa, you were absolutely right. The file size was the problem. Mark_venture, thanks so much for all of the helpful information on your site. Inever would have figured it out otherwise.

    Essentially, what I ended up doing was converting my file to a .wav file. This has twice the compression of .mp3, so it madethe file 50% smaller. Then, I renamed it to a .mid file and emailed it to my phone. Worked like a charm (finally).
